Very cute chicks.
I too would love to see these chicks as they get older... and I'd really love to see their eggs. guess we'll have to wait a few months.
they sure are sweeties. Good luck. Keep hatching.
What happened was I had this fence-jumping Barred Rock rooster and didn't know it til some of my Ameraucana chicks started hatching with head-spots.
Some of the hens came out really pretty!
I didn't have a roo in the Ameraucana pen for a while so I put a bearded pea(ish) comb blue Cuckoo roo (BR x Am' cross --- sibling to hens above) in there for a few days.
Those Cuckoo hens lay blue / green eggs (surprisingly, more blue than green). I'm hoping this cross will be an even cleaner blue.
I have no idea what splash Cuckoo will look like. I was thinking the splash markings would only be in the black bars. I searched the net for pics but couldn't find any.
It would be great if I get a splash Cuckoo roo out of this cross. I can put him in with black Am' girls and get ALL blue Cuckoo chicks --- that would be peachy (and Steph, you'll be 1st on the list. I'm sorry you got so many boys).
How cool, I love them. Look at the barring with muffs Well done! Can't wait to see more..
Quote:I think that's awesome, too. I've never seen that before!
Where's that drooling icon when you need it? I love them!!
Quote:I was looking for it as well..
Very cool Lisa, it will be fun to watch them grow.
Ohhh, thank you! They make me smile
I don't think I've seen any other barred or cuckoo bearded/muffed birds (except Cuckoo Silkies, maybe).
Cuckoo/barred roo over solid hen is *supposed* to make all cuckoo/barred chicks. I'm happyhappyhappy to see it WORKS (believe it or not, I can be a bit of a skeptic before I see something first-hand).
